on Mar 12, 2012

This year was kicked off with a highly controversial bill: the National Defense Authorization Act. The NDAA, now law, gives the US military the power to legally detain individuals without charge or trial. The right to due process has become null and void under the new legislation, even for American citizens. Recently a group of individuals filed a lawsuit against the new law to challenge it, and one of the plaintiffs is Chris Hedges, columnist for TruthDig. Hedges joins us to explain why he felt it necessary to file a lawsuit.
